OV2-5

The OV2 (Orbiting Vehicle 2) series satellites were originally built for project ARENTS (Advanced Research Environmental Test Satellite), which was intended to obtain supporting data for the Vela program. After the cancellation of the ARENTS program, the already built hardware was reused for OV2, a low-cost series of experimental satellites, which were to be launched for free on Titan-3C test flights to very different orbits.
